6 bar twist Bowie

Cody Hofsommer

Recommended Posts

Here is my latest. 10-3/8" of 1084/15n20 twist, twist guard and SS pin and spacer. The handle is Claro Walnut from Karl's stash. It's 15-3/4" OAL. Its .230 at the ricasso with about 1/16" of distal taper. Let me know what you think. <a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view¤t=15C5147C-2AEF-4BDE-912C-06BBCFEFA1FC-361-0000016D41A88445_zps31a2f72c.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/15C5147C-2AEF-4BDE-912C-06BBCFEFA1FC-361-0000016D41A88445_zps31a2f72c.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a><a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view¤t=6DF6394A-090E-49A2-8385-A4A4E2CD01D6-361-0000016D36FA93B0_zps23131482.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/6DF6394A-090E-49A2-8385-A4A4E2CD01D6-361-0000016D36FA93B0_zps23131482.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a><a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view¤t=B24BE62F-8E8E-4B52-ABA2-9196A9AB5A52-361-0000016D1EA1E67A_zpsfcca0f0f.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/B24BE62F-8E8E-4B52-ABA2-9196A9AB5A52-361-0000016D1EA1E67A_zpsfcca0f0f.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a><a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view¤t=DA6A1287-B5EA-460C-94D6-013DFB2A347E-361-0000016CF5CC7F87_zps12740516.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/DA6A1287-B5EA-460C-94D6-013DFB2A347E-361-0000016CF5CC7F87_zps12740516.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a><a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view¤t=94450E36-02C4-4A7C-9ECB-2C8D42A02F49-361-0000016CEF2C861C_zps8281fa4e.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/94450E36-02C4-4A7C-9ECB-2C8D42A02F49-361-0000016CEF2C861C_zps8281fa4e.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a>Thanks for lookinCody

really nice look, fine lines and a superbly made damascus!

but I have to admit, that I do not like guards, at least not most of them - here it kind of stands out, especially over the back of the blade, where it has no real function

wonder how it would look like when you would grind that part down to the line (sorry, just my 5ct)

best regards

Show me a man who is called an expert by his peers         

And I will show you a good man to listen to ......

Show me a man who calls himself an expert

and I will show you an egotistical asshole...............!!

Thanks for the kind words!


Jokke, I value your opinion, even if I disagree. It does seem that Eroupean blades do tend to lack large guards, and a Bowie seems naked with out a full guard to me, well most of the time!


Scott, thanks for the encouragement. I learn something every time I log on or sleep in someone's garage attic at a hammer in!


Thanks Clifford and Wes too!
